2. A. How many different ways can you get 7 with two dice?
6,1
1,6
5,2
2,5
3,4
4,3
Divide that by the total number of possible alternatives.

B. What odd numbers that can be obtained are greater than 6? (7, 9, 11) How many ways can they be obtained? Divide that by the total number of possible alternatives.

C and D have the same answer.

E. How many ways can you obtain "snake eyes"?Divide that by the total number of possible alternatives.

This should give you a start.
